A Guide about "How to evolve certain Pokémon"

Trainer Tip: You should always use Bulbapedia (Or any other Pokémon encyclopedia) when looking to know the requirements for a specific Pokémon and it's evolution.

All of the items listed below can either be bought in the Item Shop* (note that the offer changes daily and therefore not all items are available all the time), can be found in Mystery Boxes** (read more about them here), can be won from the Treasure Chest game or you can boil your gems in the Gem Cauldron.
Some of the items can also be won from the Golden Slots (Basic Mode), traded with Leah***, or your Pokémon may find certain items during Rumbling****.

* except for Spray Duck, Weather Balloon and Mega Stone
** except for Mega Stone
*** only DeepSeaScale, DeepSeaTooth, Prism Scale, Water Stone and Mega Stone
**** only Spray Duck and Weather Balloon

Item Evolution

To evolve a Pokémon with an Evolution Item, you need to go to your Itembag and then click "Use" next to the required Item. Then choose the right Pokémon from your Party/Storage Boxes and it will evolve (As long as the item fits for this Pokémon).

Happiness Evolution

To evolve a Pokémon that normally evolves with a high Happiness stat, you need to use the item "Soothe Bell". It's sometimes available at the Itemshop. You can also go to the Fancy Salon and make use of the Acupuncture treatment. It'll have the same effect.

Trade Evolution

Just like in the original games, Pokémon listed below need to be traded with another user to make them evolve. (Please note that buying Pokémon at an auction also counts as trading! So unless the Pokémon is holding an Everstone, it will evolve once being transferred to your account.)

Item Trade Evolution

Just like in the original games, Pokémon listed below need to be traded with another user to make them evolve while holding their respective items. (Please note that buying Pokémon at an auction also counts as trading! So unless the Pokémon isn't holding it's respective trade evolution item, it will evolve once being transferred to your account.)

Since Pokémon can't learn any moves on PokéHeroes, the Pokémon that would normally evolve by learning a specific move have to be evolved differently on here. The Pokémon (e.g. Tangela) evolves when reaching the level on which it would learn this move in the original game series (for example Tangela at Lvl. 40).
Exception: Piloswine evolves at Level 50 or higher.

Karrablast & Shelmet

As you may know, Karrablast and Shelmet would usually evolve by trading one for the other. However, it works slightly different on PokéHeroes.
In order to make those two evolve, you have to trade one whilst the other is in the recipent's party (i.e trading a Karrablast to somebody who has Shelmet in their party).

Mega Evolution

In generation 6 Mega Pokémon have been introduced. To mega evolve your powerful* Pokémon on PokéHeroes you need to give them a Mega Stone and level them up to Level 50.

Legendary mega / primal Pokémon don't require the special power bubble. Just equip their respective items and they'll change forme instantly. You can also remove the items anytime.

* Only Pokémon that have special power can mega evolve. You can find out about them being powerful by either checking their summary page or, if you have possible powerful Pokémon in your party, by checking Your Party or the Storage Boxes (HOME tab). If your Pokémon has the required special power, you should see a mega bubble. 1 | 2 | 3.

Added the Eevee-olutions. Leafeon and Glaceon are currently unobtainable.

How do you evolve Karrablast/Shelmet? I've traded my Karrablast for a Shelmet, and I've leveled up the Shelmet and it still hasn't evolved.

Posted: Mon, 19/08/2013 08:35 (4 Years ago)
It must experience the level-up while being in your party, I believe.

I did level it up while it was in my party...

Posted: Mon, 19/08/2013 10:41 (4 Years ago)
You must have them both in your Party - while one has a different Original Trainer. And then level it up
Posted: Tue, 20/08/2013 00:07 (4 Years ago)
Oh, so I wasn't suppose to trade the Karrablast for the Shelmet? Dang...

EDIT: So only the one with the different OT can evolve.

Will Leafeon and Glaceon be added any time soon?
Posted: Fri, 23/08/2013 08:04 (4 Years ago)
What level does mime jr have to be to evolve into mr mime instead of learning mimic
Posted: Fri, 23/08/2013 08:08 (4 Years ago)
At the same level as it would learn Mimic - which would be level 18.
Same goes for all the other Pokémon that usually evolve by learning a certain attack.
